A genuine medieval mystery play in the Cathedral!

Medieval mystery plays were usually based on biblical stories. They were always an attractive event for the audience, because they suggested spiritual participation in the performance. After the mystery play one was supposed to be transfigured, and so it happened. According to chronicles, one of the counts of Thuringia, having attended a mystery play, left all secular affairs and repented profoundly.

Authentic music implies instruments made according to genuine ancient drawings, long studies of ancient  treatises and careful reconstruction of the manner of singing. And, of course, the ears of the listeners are an important point. We are not medieval people, we know about jazz and rock music. But we can try to have a look into the medieval world and even dwell there a little. Who knows? Perhaps this performance will change us too, as it happened once upon a time to the Thuringian count.

A genuine medieval mystery play in the Cathedral!

Notre Dame school is a modern name for the authors of 1170-1240, connected not only with the Cathedral church in Paris (its construction started in 1163, under the great grandfather of Louis IX, Louis VII,  the altar was consecrated in 1182 under Louis IX’s grandfather, Philip Augustus, and the bulk of the work was terminated under Saint Louis), but also with other cathedrals and monasteries of Paris.

By that time polyphony music had been written for several centuries, but many genres, cultivated by the Notre Dame school (organum, conductus, motet) became one of the treasures of the music of the High Middle Ages and of the vocal music on the whole. Perhaps, thanks to the authors of this school, in the European music the poliphony definitely passed from performing practice to composition in the modern sence of the word. The names of great composers and poets (Leonin, Perotin, Philip the Chancellor, Walter of Châtillon) are connected with the Notre Dame school.

The Notre Dame school’s manuscripts offer us, besides the polyphony, dozens of monophonic pieces, from widely spread sophisticated conductus to merry dance rondeaux, associated both with church dances and church processions.
